I have been so grateful for all of the photographer moms I have met here in North Carolina. There is an amazing network here and everyone supports each other. When Nicole (check out her work at Hanner Studios!) emailed me about doing a lifestyle session last fall, I was so flattered that she chose me to document her family in their home. Us photographers are hard on ourselves and the images we create. When another photographer hires you, it feels pretty awesome.

Being a photographer, Nicole knew a lot of what she wanted captured so we jumped right in. The kids were so used cameras that they had no problems being themselves. A gorgeous home and a gorgeous family. My job was pretty easy!

This family. I love photographing them every single time. Carolyn found me through her sister-in-law and booked me for a birthday party session this past winter. I was so excited when she emailed me again about maternity and newborn photography sessions to document their third child. It has been so fun getting to know them and they are just the cutest family.

Their session was so close to the due date. I was crossing my fingers that we would be able to fit their session in before baby arrived.

I was thankful on the day of their session when the weather was great and there was no baby news! The sun was out and we got so many good shots. They are so natural in front of the camera and mom rocks at wardrobe coordination. I love toddler boys in bow ties. And those cat shoes on sister. Adorable.

I had the hardest time narrowing down their gallery for them to choose from. Wait until you see their newborn session!

Sophia emailed in the summer about a newborn session. I had a long time to look forward to meeting their family and photographing their newest addition! I’m always a little nervous about sessions in the winter here. North Carolina weather seems to be all over the place in the first months of the year and you never know what to expect.

We had to reschedule this session twice. First, due to dark clouds and rain and the second time due to SNOW. Remember that snowy weekend we had back in January? With all of that lovely ice? I’m originally from up north where snow is snow and we all drive on it, but living here has made me a nervous wreck when venturing out in snow. After two reschedules I didn’t have the heart to reschedule again (getting the family ready for a session takes time and I hate when my sweet clients have to do it more than once!). The roads looked decent around us in Apex so I thought we’d be good to go. Wake Forest was not so driveable. The roads were still covered in snow and ice and my good friend, Google Maps, thought it would be a good idea to avoid the main roads (the ones that were decently cleared).

I was three minutes away. Almost there, and I came to a hill mostly still covered in snow and ice.

I thought if I went fast enough, I’d be fine. I realized half way up I was pretty wrong. I was stuck in the middle of the hill only a few minutes away and backwards, down an icy hill, was my only option. I won’t leave you hanging and I’ll spare the details; I made it back down. I was only a few minutes late to their session and we had a great time.

This family was so sweet. I loved that they had a wall full of family photos! Big sister was still warming up to her new baby sister, but I was determined to get a sweet shot of her and her baby sis (it’s at the bottom of this post!). We worked hard for a few of the shots, but it is worth it. Every. single. time.

I was so happy to see these sisters again this fall! I am always amazed at just how much my little clients grow in just a year and I love that they remember me and jump right into photos. Last year, we went to Bond Park for their session and we decided on JC Raulston Arboretum this time around. The arboretum is one of my favorite locations because there is a good variety of scenery and so much room to run around.

We jumped around the arboretum so that we could shoot in my main favorite spots. The girls didn’t need much direction because as you can see, they are full of silliness and personality. We had a great sunny evening that gave us some magical images.

Sarah is a good friend and I’m glad we switched it up a little from an outdoor family session and did a lifestyle family session in their home this time around. I did a few lifestyle family sessions this fall and I’m falling in love with them more and more. I hope to fill a big part of my schedule with lifestyle sessions this year!

We loosely planned out their session to include activities like preparing food together in the kitchen and reading on the couch. I like to capture kids in their element so we spent time in the playroom and in Sofia’s room. Sofia loves her baby doll and I’m pretty sure all kids love jumping on their beds. These were definitely some of my favorite images from their session.

This sweet family is hoping to add to their family through adoption. I cannot wait to see this family welcome home a sibling for Sophia. Their adoption site is: www.chrisandsarahadopt.com and their Facebook page is: https://www.facebook.com/chrisandsarahadopt/
